We just had a great time doing photography and research in beautiful Ucluelet on Canada’s Wild Pacific Coast. We’re working with Discover Ucluelet and the Ukee Historical Society to develop a couple walking tours examining the community’s intimate relationship with the sea (there was no land connection until 1959!) and the seaplane base the Canadian military set up there during World War II.
The photos are (1) me! (Andrew) at the seaplane base whose main occupants are now a group of loud, grouchy sealions, (2) Alexa reshooting from roughly the same angle a painting by Emily Carr that depicts the First Nations village on the other side of the inlet, (3) the standard warning sign you come across all over the west coast of Vancouver Island and (4) Alexa indulging her inner urban explorer checking out some abandoned WW2 bomb shelters.
We can’t wait to launch this content in the next few weeks, stay tuned!
